blonde grizzly bear photoThis is a photo of the bear we named “Cheetah” on the first day I met her.  (We were to become good friends).  When her fur is dry, she is one of the lightest colored grizzly bears I’ve ever seen.  Cheetah walked up to us, curious but never ever aggressive.  She was a grizzly who was very comfortable around people, but quite cranky around other bears.  Her large size and attitude allowed her to bully other bears who invaded her personal space.
